A Master's in Finance is a way to strengthen your background in the subject. Depending on the program and the MBA you are comparing it to, it will possibly offer higher-level courses in quantitative finance than an MBA which offers a more diverse mix of courses to suit the varied interests of its students. However, a Master's in Finance traditionally has fewer takers than an MBA. This translates to fewer employers on campus, making it slightly harder to secure a job after graduation.
On the other hand, if you are keen on being an investment banker, MBA and then Investment Banking is an established career path, and one that comes with many recruitment opportunities both during and after MBA. If your main reason for pursuing an MBA is to obtain an investment banking job, I would recommend an MBA over MS Finance.
